Summer in the City 2013!

Hi Lovelies. Welcome back to Beautiful You. 

As it says in my bio underneath my picture, I am an avid YouTube watcher! I am one of those people that check to see when their subscriptions have uploaded a new video and I even get emails every time they do! Therefore naturally when I found out about this event I was eager to go! 

Summer in the City is an event organised by YouTubers where the creators and the viewers can get together and enjoy a fun packed weekend! This year it was held at Alexandria Palace, in North London on the 17th and the 18th of August 2013. The event in total cost £21 for both of the days and for me that price was more than reasonable. 

So on the Saturday me and my sister got up at the crack of dawn to get ready and then made our way to London! As you can see we were pretty excited!

So once we arrived, we realised that there were considerably more people there than we expected, but anyway we soon found out way to where we wanted to be which was in the queue for Jim Chapman and Joe Sugg's meet and greet as we had already missed out on meeting Jack and Finn! After nearly an hour of queuing we were nearly there and while we were in the queue I spoke to Joey Graceffa who was doing his meet up next to the boys. Eventually we did meet Jim and Joe they were both so lovely, give amazing hugs and even took some cheeky selfies with us!

After meeting Jim and Joe we knew that the next meet up we wanted to go to was Louise (Sprinkle of Glitter), Tanya Burr and Zoe (Zoella) so we tried to make our way back into the queue, after waiting there for what felt like hours and hours a man arrived and started moving the queue sign and at first we didn't think anything of it, but suddenly a huge mob of people ran after him (which of course included me and my sister)! And I don't know how we did it but we were basically first in the queue! The best part ever though was while we were waiting my favourite band ever at the moment The Vamps were performing on the main stage just across from the queue, I must say with that and then meeting my three favourite YouTubers my day was made. 

The three ladies were lovely, had hugs, a small chat and then took a photo, it was amazing to meet my idol Zoella finally! 

After this me and my sister were on a high but we had met everyone that we wanted to meet (apart from Jack and Finn but that was impossible) so we decided to call it a day. We did go for the second day of SitC on the Sunday but after all the meet ups being full and having nothing to do; plus we were going on holiday that evening, we decided to go into Central London and have some lunch and shop around for a while! It was definitely worth it because I found Maybelline Babylips after I had been searching for, for ages!! Overall Summer in the City was an amazing experience but after all the pushing and screaming, I don't think I'd go again! Here are just some pictures I got of other people and the other people I met, Joey Graceffa, Troye Sivan, Dave Erasmus, Dolly Bow Bow (fan girled a little because she tweeted us back too!!) and finally I tried to get a picture of Jack and Finn, but oh look I failed!

I hope you enjoyed this post because I definitely enjoyed the day! Let me know if you want to see anything specific on here and I will try my best!
